Description

The site is located in remote, upland rough pasture about 600m south-south-east of Cefngarw. It lies on the fairly level terrace below a rocky knoll beside a marshy area. The monument comprises a group of four roughly circular huts dating from the Iron Age and Romano-British period, with a small paddock attached to two of the huts. Although tumbled the walls of the huts were clearly substantial and included large blocks of masonry in their construction.

The scheduled area comprises a rectangle measuring 80m NE-SW x 40m.
